Group Swim Lessons

Follow the flow chart below to determine your child’s level. On the first day of class, instructors will conduct a swim test to confirm the level. If your child is in the Seahorses Class, you will need to be in the water with your child and have proper swim attire.

Each Group Swim Lesson class is designed to accommodate 2-5* participants over the course of 8 meetings. However, swim lesson classes will never be cancelled due to low enrollment. Classes with 1 participant enrolled will have an accelerated class schedule because of the ability to progress more quickly through each skill. Participants will meet for 4 class periods. 

*Seahorses are designed to accommodate 2-10 participants, with the same schedule adjustments for classes with 1 participant enrolled.
